AlphaScope: Adjustable-Elbow-Crutches

Date Posted:14 November 2018 

Double Adjustable Elbow Crutches with Anatomical Grip


  • These forearm crutches are made from lightweight anodized 1” aluminium and will support a weight of 100kg.
  • Anatomical handgrips which conform to the shape of the hand and may provide a more comfortable grip for some patients.
  • They are double adjustable: the lower part of the crutch can be adjusted to suit the hand height, and the distance between the plastic cuff and the hand grip can also be adjusted.
  • Angled neck reduces strain on wrists.

Fitting Elbow Crutches

  • Standing upright, with your shoulders squared, adjust the hand grip of the crutch to the crease of your wrist.
  • If the height is properly set, your elbows should be slightly bent.
  • Adjust the cuff of the crutch to a point where it is approximately 5cm below the bend in the elbow.
  • Once the height has been adjusted, tighten the collars at the base of the crutch and on the stem of the cuff.

Walking with Crutches

  • Use the hand grips for support.
  • Before walking, ensure that you are standing straight and balanced with the injured leg bent slightly.
  • The crutch tips should be slightly in front and out to the side.
  • With both crutches out in front of your body, swing your good leg forward.
  • Balance your weight on your hands and push down on the crutch handle.
  • All weight is then supported by the crutches while the strong leg is swung forward to a point up to or just past the crutches.

Care and Maintenance 

  • Ensure all locking collars are tightened.
  • Check crutch tips are securely attached and not worn.
  • Make sure that crutch heights are evenly matched.
  • Check that the push buttons for the height adjustment have snapped into position.
  • Regularly check crutches for cracks and damage.
